Scenes From Old Shands Bridge Pier

The Old Shands Bridge Pier is no more than a 10 minute drive from my front door.  The original bridge spanning the St. Johns River to Green Cove Springs, found its use for transportation ended in the 1960s.  Today, the renovated remnants provide quite the opportunity for local fishermen to try and bring dinner to hand.  I visited yesterday to find it relatively uncrowded, but full of stories to tell.


  1. The fact that this is a tenkara post caught me totally by surprise. Well played. ;)

    1. That ain't tenkara...but you know that...

  2. Looks like the perfect place for a little live shrimp fishing.

    1. Probably. I need to go back and give it a whirl.
